Nelf Velvet Shine Lip Gloss (Coral Quartz, Valentine Red) - Price and Swatches

Hey everyone

If you know that I recently started my YouTube channel with the unboxing video of Nelf Cosmetics Vanity Kit, then you must have heard me mention about lip glosses in the kit.

Product Info:
Want a lip gloss shinier than your diamonds? Big news! There’s a new gloss in town! and it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of…. Fabulous shades and SUPER shiny. This is the latest must-have accessory! A perfect lipgloss to give you that velvety shine.

Nelf Velvet Shine Lip Gloss packs are long, sleek, cylindrical bottles. They have golden screw cap that will open up as a spongy applicator as you open it.

The details of shade number and name is printed on the label under the lip gloss bottle. The shade Valentine Red is numbered VS04 and Coral Quartz is numbered VS02.
I'm not a lip gloss person so lip glosses are not my usual pick. At any point of time, I would prefer lipsticks over glosses. And that is the reason you won't find any lipgloss reviews of my blog earlier. But the lipsticks devotees like me should also try out variation for a newer look. ;)

So today I'm going to show you swatches of two different shades of Nelf Velvet Shine Lip Glosses that I received.. The Valentine Red is a deep red that flatters most Indian skin tones and the Coral Quartz is girly shade to put on every day.

The lip glosses are light-weight in texture. The spongy applicator that comes along the gloss gives precise coverage as it has slight slanted cut over it.

I think the color pay off depends of darkness of shade of glosses. The Valentine Red offered better pigmentation than Coral Quartz. Though the lip glosses are sheerer than a lipstick as expected, still the shades which I got are able to hide any discoloration on lips, if any.

The application of lip glosses feels bit sticky to me as I'm not used to and has the tendency to wear off much easy than lipstick. As far as staying power is concerned, the lip glosses can't survive a complete meal and fade away. But I don't mind reapplication as I like how my lips highlight my face with a glossy lustre and feel nicely moist for longer time than a lipstick.
Price: Rs 325 each
Shelf Life: 3 yrs
The detailed ingredient list is printed on outer cardboard box of lip gloss.
To sum up, Nelf Velvet Shine Lip glosses are pretty attractive. None of these two shades that I got are shimmery so I need not to wait for party time to wear these. I'm sure that wearing these lip glosses during winters will save my lips from getting dry cracks too as the ingredients include jojoba oil and castor oil, almond oil too.
I'm glad that I've started plying with a new makeup product and enjoying it :)

Do share what do you prefer - a lipstick or a lipgloss and which is your favourite brand?
